View our assortment of 3D printer kits. This selection of 3D printer kits require minor assembly and can easily be set up. We have different brands that offer 3D printer kits with their own features and benefits. Have a look using the left menu to find your 3D printer kit.
A SD Card in your printer will allow you to store prints and print them directly from SD. This is more reliable than a USB connection and allows you to power down your computer.
The auto bed leveling feature will probe the buildplate on a few different points. This allows the 3D printer to detect deviations in the buildplate and adjust the print accordingly. This makes is much easier to start a print as you don't have to manually adjust the bed position.
This feature allows your printer to be controlled over a WIFI network. You can execute movements as well as start a print.
This feature allows your printer to be controlled over a Ethernet network. You can execute movements as well as start a print.
Detect if you have run out of filament or that the filament is broken.
This machine has an enclosure to protect the print or product from outside influences.
Bowden printers feed filament through a tube as opposed to Direct Drive systems. This adds important advantages (faster printing) and disadvantages (higher filament retraction settings). You can find more information on Direct Drive and Bowden systems, Click here
Maximum speed for printing moves of the machine, so while extruding filament.
For most entry-level, smaller 3D printers this is a single threaded rod. For bigger machines the Z-axis moves with two rods, while 3D printers with a bed plate that moves in the Z-axis typically have three or four rods to move.
The direction the buildplate moves. Most printers move the build plate in the Y-axis direction. This is a simpler design, but gives problems at greater build height, because the inertia of the mass of the buildplate + 3D print impact the quality of the layers, requiring you to limit the speed. Other printers move in the Z-axis, allowing you to print faster without trading quality of the layer build-up.
Independent Dual Extruders (IDEX) allow you to print two identical objects at the same time. Printer that support this have at least two extruder head that can move independently on one axis. Other printing modes that may be supported are mirrored printing and printing in multiple colors/materials
A 3D printer kit will be delivered with its parts unassembled. This means that you will get to put your own 3D printer together and easily adjust and modify it according to your preferences. 3D printer kits require minor assembly in comparison with DIY 3D printer kits which need more time during the construction phase. A 3D printer kit is great for learning the works of a 3D printer and being able to conveniently customize it and add upgrades. Discover the different brands and attributes by using the filter menu on the left. With the comparison tool found underneath each 3D printer, you can check and compare the different specifications to efficiently select your 3D printer kit.
Choose a 3D printer kit that supports the features you need. The different features of the 3D printer kits will give you many options. The things to look at when choosing your 3D printer kit are:
Be sure to also purchase a 3D printer kit that can use the filament material that you prefer for your 3D models. We offer a range of 3D filament for every 3D printing application, do have a look at our prime 3D filament for the best looking 3D models. More features can be further considered in detail, as shown on every 3D printer kit’s specification page. The 3D printer kits will usually come with tools, a power cable, a micro SD card, and a limited amount of test filament. Once you make an order, the order will be dispatched on the same working day from our warehouse near Manchester.
There is no need to hold back on your creativity as we have 3D printers, such as the Snapmaker 3-in-1 which provide multiple options. CNC stands for computer numerical control, which controls a range of tools that are translated to by code, resulting in movements that will cut and mill through objects. This is how CNC milling can make complex objects by using a variety of milling tools such as different drill bits, fly cutters, and reamers. Another function of the all-in-one 3D printer is laser engraving, where a laser beam is used to carve into a material such as wood, cork, marble, metals, and more. Lastly, the 3D printer uses FDM to print models. Like with all 3D printers, there are different features to consider when looking at the types of all-in-one 3D printers such as whether there is an auto bed leveling feature and certainly the overall build volume. For a 3D printer that can do it all, visit this page to buy the Snapmaker.
